New Porsche V8 to power future Audis

New Porsche V8 to power future Audis

Porsche revealed a new twin-turbo V8 engine at the Vienna Motor Symposium on May 5, and reports have suggested that this engine will soon find its way into various applications throughout the VW Group.

While the new mill is claimed to use 30 per cent less fuel than the outgoing version, it also features cylinder deactivation. Transmission duties will be accomplished by either the ZF eight-speed automatic with a torque converter or a ZF eight-speed dual-clutch automatic.

Expected to be first used in the upcoming Porsche Panamera Turbo, this motor produces 549bhp and is roughly 21bhp lower than the 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8 that’s currently in the Panamera Turbo S. Sources have added that this motor is technically related to Audi’s new turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 that’s in use in the new S4, and will eventually find its way into a few VW group models like Audis, Bentleys, and possibly even the Lamborghini Urus.

Once launched in the international market, these updated versions will ultimately find their way into the Indian market too.
